Both Motorola and Lenovo are expected to announce Android devices powered by Intel Medfield chips at next week's Mobile World Congress.

First disclosed all the way back in December 2008 , the Intel processor has been making some noise lately with terrific benchmark scores .

Motorola is reportedly set to unveil a Medfield smartphone that runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features a camera with 15-frame-per-second burst capture. Based on the first images of the handset, we also can surmise that Moto is ready to give us a refreshed custom interface as well.

Lenovo, for its part, should provide new details for the K800 smartphone and a K2110 tablet . Both are expected to run Android 4.0 and feature some of that signature Lenovo skin that graces existing models.

The 4.5-inch handset made its first public appearance back in January at CES when it was announced for China's Unicom network. At the time it was listed with a second-quarter release date so perhaps Mobile World Congress will yield more specific details.

Although we've yet to see Lenovo make a splash in the U.S. smartphone market, occasionally you can find one of the company's tablets at your local office supply superstore. A new chipset coupled with a hot new platform could be a great opportunity for Lenovo to buddy up with a stateside carrier.
